AC MILAN HAVE confirmed that they’ve made an approach for out-of-favour Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez.

The Serie A club’s vice-president Adriano Galliani says they emailed a loan offer through to Eastlands on Tuesday and says an agreement is already in place with the Argentina No 10.

“Between yesterday and today I have taken steps to reinforce a team that is already a formidable one,” Galliani told the Milan Channel (see Daily Mail).

“We have the agreement with Tevez and we recently sent an email to City with our offer. Our offer is a free loan deal with an option to sign the player permanently on certain conditions.

“We hope City says yes. There were other European clubs interested, but we are in pole position. Tevez wants to come to us. Half of the agreement has been reached. Now we await City’s response.”

Corriere dello Sport report that Tevez had agreed a basic salary of £3.4m for this season.

Manchester City face Bayern Munich at Eastlands tomorrow night in their final Champions League group stage game. At the corresponding fixture at the Allianz Arena in October, Tevez seemingly refused to come on as a sunstitute, sparking his exile from the senior squad.
